David Bowie - "The Width Of The Circle" lyrics

In the corner of the morning in the past
All the roads were straight and narrow
I would sit and blame the master first and last
And the prayers were small and yellow
And the rumour spread that I was aging fast
Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping
By a tree.

And I looked and frowned and the monster was me.
Well,I said hello and I said hello
So we asked a simple black bird,who was happy as can be
And he laughed insane and quipped "KAHLIL GIBRAN"
And I asked "Why not'" and I replied "I don't know"
So I cried for all the others till the day was nearly through
For I realized that God's a young man too.

Smashed my soul and traded my mind
So I said "So long" and I waved "Bye-bye"
I was vaguely half asleep,
Got layed by a young bordello,
For which my reputation swept back home in a drag
Negotiates my hide
And the moral of this magic spell
He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips
When God did take my logic for a ride
And showed me the leather belt round his hips

He said "You'll never go down to the Gods again"
My knees were shaking my cheeks aflame
(Turn around,go back!)

He struck the ground a cavern appeared
We crashed a thousand yards below
And I smelt the burning pit of fear
I said "Do it again, do it again"
(Turn around,go back!)

His nebulous body swayed above
The snake and I,a venom high
His tongue swollen with devils love
I said "Do it again, do it again"

Breathe,breathe,breathe deeply
(Turn around,go back!)
And I was seething,breathing deeply
A spitting sentry,horned and tailed
Waiting for you
